Alliance aims to keep female workers safe on the job

Construction workers in Minnesota and elsewhere may face safety hazards whenever they go to work. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has aligned itself with the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) to focus on ways to make construction work safer for females. They will focus in tandem on ways to resolve issues related to workplace violence and sanitation on job sites.

The OSHA Alliance Program partners with a variety of groups that target many different audiences. However, OSHA provides all of its partners with access to educational materials and other guidance to promote workplace safety in all industries. Through its partnership with NAWIC, OSHA will provide information about how to recognize and reduce workplace hazards. It will also share information related to its campaigns to prevent injuries or illnesses from falls or heat stroke.

There are many ways in which a worker may become injured or ill on the job. In some cases, a fall from a roof or a raised platform could result in head, back or other injuries. Falling objects or exposure to an open flame may also result in a worker getting hurt. Exposure to chemicals or other materials may lead to a worker experiencing an allergic reaction or other serious illness that may require time away from work to recover.

Those who get hurt or become sick while at work may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. These benefits may make it easier to pay medical expenses or retain a portion of salary or wages lost while out of work. An attorney may be helpful to those who have questions about their application or who have had their request for benefits denied. Benefits may be offered permanently to those who cannot return to work because of their condition.
